Our Basics program is a recreational gymnastic program and has classes for both boys and girls. We provide a non-competitive, progressive (Our program follows USAG guidelines for skills and progressions.) gymnastics environment to our student while striving to improve their level of fitness, coordination, strength, flexibility, and self-confidence. These core essentials are the foundation to other sports or activities.
Girls will be trained on the uneven bars, vault, balance beam, and floor exercise. Boys will be trained on parallel bars, pommel horse, still rings, high bar, vault and floor exercise. In addition all students will be learn tumbling on mini tramp, trampoline, Tumbl Trak and Air Trak.
Most basics classes are 60 minutes in length, meet twice a week and are offered to children ages 5 and up. You are welcome to add more than one class per week if you feel your child could use the extra training and is ready for a more intense training schedule. Children that hope to one day be on one of Frontier’s competitive teams could benefit from the training provided through the additional classes as our competitive teams are by tryout and invitation only. A 10% discount will be offered to students who sign up for additional classes.
